Wine Region: 


The first vineyards in France were established about 2,000 years ago in Provence. Located in the southeastern part of France and hemmed in by the Mediterranean Sea, Rhone river, and Côte d'Azur, much of the area receives a lot of sun – there are relatively mild winters and dry summers, although microclimes and weather variations exist. Provencal winds, which can go as fast as a hundred kilometers per hour, are cold and dry. 

The landscape of Provence is typically garrigue – a short scrubland rooted in shore-adjacent limestone – and dense oak thickets. The warm climate and craggy landscapes host many prominent grapes, although mostly hostile to large-scale agriculture. No wines of repute were made in Provence to about the 1970s, up until new methods and technologies that then grew better grape varietals were introduced to mostly create rosés. 

Featured Grape Varieties: 
Grenache Noir
